We will watch them win this Thursday (live)

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud:
Tiger lost the freakin' PGA from a guy that NO ONE HAS ever heard of.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining:
Pudge's Return - I guess. Is this guy going to play? Since a 4 Game is unheard of, this loss increases the chance of a win on Thursday when we watch live.

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes:
Minnesota has a pretty decent team. Not sure what we need with Pudge - I am going to assume he is just a fill-in, from time to time.

Ok, sad that we don't win in the semi-Pudge debut BUT I'm not sure if y'all have been paying attention WE CAN HIT!?!?!?!!!!!! This is great news. The bullpen tightens up, a touch...really, just get back to late July/early August form and we are in the pennant chase. If Mauer isn't in some alternate "I can hit anything" universe, we win this game going away.

Truly, I we split/win every series from here on out, it will not hurt when the Cowgirls open 0-3.

Good point about the hitting. I didn't see much of last nights game though. But, Jedi Josh has apparently been batting over .400 since the road trip. Excellent, everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

And I think the pitching is about to hit on all cylinders. Remember, Frankie Fran is still coming off that injury. And I also think Wash has to try not to over manage the bullpen/pitchers. He got these big claws (CJ, ODay, Mathis, Everyday Eddie, Frankie, Happy Feliz, Jennings(JJ's cousin)) and he doesn't know how to play with the bunny (the opposing teams batting order).

Lastly, Borbon is my new favorite Ranger. He only has 20-something at bats but his batting avg and OBP and stolen bases are great. New lead off guy?

Mmmm....Borbon is tasty...

Surprisingly, although I believe he's Dominican, he was born in Starkville, Mississippi, where his dad is a professor. BTW, he batted leadoff throughout his minor league career.
